GOV. BRADFORD'S LETTER TO GOV. WINTHROP 



HTHE Mayflower 

Descendant 



VoL DC JANUARY, J907 No. J 



GOVERNOR BRADFORD'S LETTER TO 
GOVERNOR WINTHROP 

Transcribed from the Original Document^ 
By George Ernest Bowman 

In the Chamberlain Collection at the Boston Public Library- 
is an ancient letter which will be of great interest to a large 
proportion of those who can trace their descent from Pilgrim 
ancestry. This letter, elated 6 February, 163 1 (16 February, 
1632, new style), is in the well-known handwriting of Governor 
William Bradford, and on the fourth page was addressed by 
him as follows : " To o r Worp u good freinds m r Winthrop Gove r 
of the Massachusetts & the rest of the Counssell ther." It 
was signed by Governor Bradford, also by Capt. Myles Stand- 
ish, Thomas Prence (afterwards Governor of Plymouth Colony), 
Doctor Samuel Fuller and John Alden. As Thomas Prence 
had married Patience, the daughter of Elder William Brewster, 
and the letter contains references to Edward Winslow (after- 
wards Governor of Plymouth Colony), and to Richard Church, 
who married Elizabeth, the daughter of Richard Warren, this 
document, which is reproduced in half-tone as the frontispiece 
of this issue, will be of especial interest to the thousands of 
descendants of the Bradford, Standish, Brewster, Fuller, Alden, 
Winslow and Warren families. 

As shown by the illustration, the letter is well preserved, 
although somewhat stained. The date "1631" on the upper 
left-hand corner is a modern addition in pencil. The document 
contains four pages, twelve and three-fourths by seven and 
seven-eighths inches in size. The letter is on the first page, 
the second and third pages are blank, and the address was 
written on the fourth page, after folding. 



2 Governor Bradford's Letter to Governor Winthrop 

[Governor Bradford to Governor Winthrop] 

Gentlemen, and Worthy ly beloved Freinds. 

We have now at length returned an Answer to your letter 
dated the . 26 . of July (The reason we have so longe deffered 
y e same, is because we have had no courte till y e last month 
being Januarie) The sume wherof is this : that we are willing 
to curesponde with you in this, or any other neborly course, 
so fare as may no way be prejudicall to any, or swarve from y e 
rules of equitie . how fare m r Winsiow expreste y t agreement 
you intimate we know not (seeing he is absente) but our mean- 
ing, & former practiss, was & hath been, only of shuch as 
come to dwell, & inhabite, whether as servants, or free men,; 
and not of soujournours w ch come but for a seasone, with a 
purpose to returne . yet if any abuse should grow 7 hereby ; we 
shall agree to any good order for the preventing or redressing 
of y e same ; provided the way be left open for pore men to 
re]eve ther wants, And for mutuall help to both plantations. 
We have therfore given warning in open courte to all our 
people ; not to receive any as servants, or other dwellers with 
them, but to acquainte us first therwith that we may inquire 
of their certificates or dismisions ; but we have sett no pen- 
ealtie upon it as yett, because we hope ther shall be noe need 
if ther be we have libertie to punish shuch things at our dis- 
cretions ; if that will not serve ; when we understand what 
penealtie you apointe in the case, we shall doe y e like, or y* 
which shall be equivelente unto it. As for the instances you 
give ; we find that John Philips when he came was sicke & if 
he had not been by some received to house he had been in 
danger to have perished, he aiedged he was sent by his maister 
to seeke a servise ; yet as a servente he was not entertained 
by any ; till his maister came and sould his time, (not to him 
y* gave him house roome) but to him that would give most, 
so he had no cause to complaine . for John Pickworth he came 
but as a soujournour to worke for a few weeks, in wch time 
he goate a wife, & so is longe since returned duble, & hath no 
cause to complaine, excepte he hath goot a badwife. Richard 
Church came likewise ass a soujournour to worke for y e pres- 
ent ; though he is still hear residente longer then he purposed ;. 
And what he will doe, neither, we nor I thinke him selfe knowes ; 
but if he resolve here to setle we shall require of him to pro- 
cure a dismision ; but he did affirme to us at y e first, that he 
was one of m r webbs men, & freed to goe for England or 
whither he would, y e w ch we y e rather beleved because he came 



Records from the Cemetery at Pembroke Center, Mass. 3 

to us frome wessagasscusett upon y e falling out with his partt- 
ner ; for others intimated, we know none (thoug[h] we have 
inquired) but they had a dismission either to come hither, or 
goe for England. Now ther are diverce goone from hence, to 
dwell and inhabite with you, as Clement Brigges . John Hill, 
John Eedy, daniell ray, &c . the which if either you, or they 
desire thir dismissions ; we shall be redy to give them ; hopeing 
you will doe the like ; in the like cases, though we have heard 
something otherwise. Thus with our prayers to y e Lord for 
your prosperity, as our owne, and our harty salutations unto 
you all we rest 

your assured loving freinds

22 Proceedings of the Fourth General Congress 

the religious purpose that was made so clear and p-ominent 
in their commission from the Mother country ; the hardships, 
perils and deadly tragedies which shadowed their early years, 
and the heroism and faith of men like Capt. John Smith, and 
Rev. Robert Hunt, which show out all the more brightly by 
contrast with their dark surroundings. 

Jamestown and Plymouth, Virginia and Massachusetts, will 
be forever associated as the brightest names in the beginnings

Proceedings of the Fourth General Congress 23 

Elder General Rev. John Louis Ewell, D.D., invoked the 
divine blessing and Governor General Samuel B. Capen made 
an interesting address, followed by Rev. John Cuckson, Pastor 
of the Church of the First Parish, and by Rev. YV. W. Dornan, 
Pastor of the Church of the Pilgrimage, in both serious and 
entertaining remarks. 

Morton Dexter, of Boston, in the course of an address 
eulogizing the high standard of character and loftiness of pur- 
pose of the Pilgrims, said : "I have given a great deal of time 
and attention to the study of Pilgrim history, especially that 
part of it relating to the origin and development of the Pilgrim 
movement and of their life in England and Holland, and until 
they came here, and the more I have studied their history, the 
more I have learned to regard them with the profoundest rever- 
ence. I learned to look upon them with reverence and an honor 
which I never had expected to feel for any men or women of 
the past. 

" I tell you, in the loftiness of their standards, in their 
shrewd sagacity, in their inflexible tenacity of purpose, in 
their self-sacrifice, in their breadth and tolerance, their charity 
of spirit, a most unusual thing in their time, in the sweetness 
and nobility of their personal characters, and in the absolute 
unconsciousness that they were heroes and heroines, they 
impressed themselves on me as no other characters in all 
history. 

"It would be impossible, in my judgment, to do them 
too much reverence." 

Miss Mary Augusta Kent, of Pennsylvania, spoke in an 
entertaining and humorous manner and was followed by Elder 
General Ewell and by Deputy Governor General Charles A. 
Hopkins, of Massachusetts. Deputy Governor General Richard 
Henry Greene then read an original poem. 

During the evening the " Mayflower Song," words by 
Richard Henry Greene, of New York, and music by W. H. 
Doane, of Ohio, was sung with effect, and the gathering of 
a hundred and twenty " Pilgrims "to do honor to the memory 
of their forefathers closed with the singing of "America."

Secretary General pro tern.

40 Rev. Jonathan Scott's Record of Marriages 



REV. JONATHAN SCOTT'S RECORD OF MARRIAGES 

Communicated by Henry Edwards Scott 

During the years of his ministry in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, 
and in Poland (later Minot), Maine, extending over almost half 
a century, Rev. Jonathan Scott * kept a careful record of the 
marriages which he solemnized, beginning in 1772 and ending 
in 1 8 19. One hundred and seventy marriages were solemnized 
by him in Nova Scotia, and one hundred and thirteen in Maine. 
Mr. Scott recorded also the marriage of his daughter Lucretia 
to Timothy Reding, which was solemnized by Rev. John Strick- 
land of Turner, Maine, after Mr. Scott had removed from Nova 
Scotia to Maine but before he had been installed as pastor of 
the church in Poland. The manuscript, therefore, contains a 
record of two hundred and eighty-four marriages. There are 
also two or three entries referring to Mr. Scott's installation 
over and subsequent relations to the church in Poland (Minot). 
In the case of Nova Scotia marriages, when the banns had 
been published by some other person than Mr. Scott, the 
certificates also are recorded. 

This record, which is now in the possession of a great-grand- 
daughter of Mr. Scott, is preserved in a little book 5 7 / 8 inches 
in height and 3 3 / 4 inches in width. It is bound in dark green 
covers, one of which is extended as a flap, when the book is 
closed, and fastened by a brass clasp to the centre of the other 
cover. There is a pocket on the inside of each cover, and the 
appearance of the book (save for the color of the binding and 
the brass clasp) is not unlike that of one of the ordinary pocket 
diaries of today. On the outside of one cover, running length- 
wise from top to bottom, are faint traces of writing in black 
ink, and the words, "A Record of Marriages," may be read 
with difficulty. 

The book contains eighty-eight leaves, or one hundred and 
seventy-six pages, of white paper, all of which were originally un- 
ruled ; but the title-page and pages 3-89 have been ruled faintly, 
probably by Mr. Scott's hand. The first leaf was left blank, 
and the first page of the second leaf was used for the title-page. 
The first page of the third leaf is numbered 3, and from there 
on to the end of the book the pages are numbered with ink, 
there being in all one hundred and seventy-four numbered pages. 
Pages 3-12, inclusive, were set apart for " The Contents," a 

* For Rev. Jonathan Scott and his family, see ante, VIII : So 



Rev. Jonathan Scott's Record of Marriages 41 

list of the names of the men who were married, in the order 
in which the marriages were solemnized, with references to the 
pages where the marriages are recorded. The record proper 
begins on page 13, and ends near the middle of page 127, 
page 60 being left blank. Pages 12 8- 164 and 170-174, inclu- 
sive, are also blank, pages 165-169 being devoted to "The 
Remainder of the Contents," for which the pages originally 
set apart did not suffice. The handwriting in the first part of 
the book is large, and very easy to read, and mistakes in spell- 
ing are rare. As a rule only two marriages are recorded on a 
page ; beyond page 89, however, three or four marriages are 
recorded on a page, the handwriting is smaller and betrays a 
feebler hand, and mistakes in spelling, due, apparently, to care- 
lessness or weariness, are more frequent. 

The title-page and the record are printed in full. The 
Contents have not been printed ; but where the name as given 
in the Contents differs in any way from the name in the record, 
attention has been called to this difference in a foot-note.

52 James Scammon Emery 's Family Bible Record 



JAMES SCAMMON EMERY'S FAMILY BIBLE RECORD 

Communicated by Miss Florence Elsie Blake 

There is in the possession of the writer the family Bible 
of her grandfather, James Scammon Emery, showing, in his 
handwriting, records of his marriage and the births of the 
members of his own and his father's families, and of the births 
of his grandparents, James Emery and Mar}' Scammon, and 
their children ; also records of the deaths of two of his children. 

All descendants of James and Mary (Scammon) Emery can 
claim Mayflower descent, since Mary Scammon was a daughter 
of Samuel and Mehitable (Hinckley) Scammon and was de- 
scended from Elder William Brewster through her mother, who 
was a daughter of Samuel and Mary (Freeman) Hinckley. 
The baptism of Mehitable Hinckley and the admission of her 
parents to the church at Truro will be found in the " Truro, 
Mass., Church Records," printed in this number. Mary (Free- 
man) Hinckley was a daughter of Lieutenant Edmund Freeman 
and a granddaughter of Major John Freeman and Mercy 
Prence, who was a daughter of Governor Thomas Prence and 
Patience 2 Brewster (Elder William 1 ), 

Buxton, Wayne, Carmel and Hampden, the places mentioned 
in the entries, are all in the State of Maine.

TRURO, MASS*, CHURCH RECORDS 

Transcribed from the Original Records^ 
By George Ernest Bowman 



The oldest record book of the Congregational Church at 
Truro, Mass., covers the period from 1709 to 1833 and con- 
tains, in addition to the church proceedings, the records of 
more than 800 admissions to membership, of more than 900 
persons who owned the covenant, and of over 4,000 baptisms. 
The list of baptisms contains the names of many children 
whose births are not to be found on the town records ; the 
list of covenant owners (many of whom later were admitted to 
full communion) in connection with the list of members, is 
also of great assistance in tracing the Truro families. 

♦The deaths of James S. and Eliza A. Emery were recorded by their daughter. 



54 Truro y Mass., Church Records 

In 1 886 the baptisms prior to 1800 were printed in pamphlet 
form, under the title " Truro Baptisms 1711-1S00," but a care- 
ful comparison of this pamphlet with the original record has 
disclosed many errors in the names and dates as printed, and 
the errors in the names have resulted, in a number of instances, 
in changing the sex of the persons mentioned. The comparison 
also disclosed the omission from the pamphlet of several bap- 
tismal records, which even now can be read with little difficulty. 
It has seemed best, therefore, to include the baptisms in the 
present transcript, which was made from the original record 
book, in order that an accurate and complete copy of these 
important records may be preserved and made accessible to all. 

The "Church Proceedings" begin on page 1 of the record 
book, the "Covenant Owners " on page 28, the "Baptisms" on 
page 50, and the "Members Admitted" on page 300. In this 
article all records to the end of the year 17 19 are given, under 
their respective headings,* and, as far as possible, this method 
will be followed in future articles, each one including the pro- 
ceedings, covenant owners, baptisms and admissions to a specified 
date.

JOHN 2 RICHMOND (JOHN 1 ) HAD TWO WIVES 

Communicated by Edward Henry Whorf 

The following abstracts from the Bristol County, Mass., 
Probate and Land Records, in connection with the will of John 2 
.Rogers (Thomas 1 ), printed in the fifth volume of this magazine, 
furnish conclusive proof that John 2 Richmond (John 1 ) had two 
waves ; but nothing has yet been learned regarding the first 
wife except that she was the mother of the first four children. 
The second wife, Abigail 3 Rogers {John 2 , Thomas 1 ), was the 
mother of the other seven children. 

From the Plymouth Colony Records and the Taunton Pro- 
prietors' Records we learn that John 2 Richmond had eleven 
.children, born as follows: Mary, 2 June, 1654; John, 6 June, 
11656 (he died young); Thomas, 2 February, 1658; Susanna, 
4 November, 1661 ; Joseph, 8 December, 1663 ; Edward, S Feb- 
ruary, 1665 ; Samuel, 23 September, 1668 ; Sarah, 26 February, 
1670; John (second of the name), 5 December, 1673 ; Ebenezer, 
12 May, 1676; Abigail, 26 February, 1678. 

In the will of John 2 Rogers, made in 1691, he gives "to 
my daughter Abigail Richmond " money due from " my two 
Grandsons Joseph Richmond and Edward Richmond." As 
Abigail (Rogers) Richmond was the mother of Joseph and 
}Edw r ard and was living in 1691, she must have been also the 
mother of the five children born after Edward. 

'The abstracts from the Bristol County Records here printed 
relate to the settlement of the estate of John 2 Richmond's son 

-*The words in italics are later additions to the record. 



John 1 Richmond (John 1 ) Had Two Wives 59 

Thomas. He died in 1705, evidently without issue, and his 
estate was divided between his sisters, Mary Godfrey and 
Susanna Reed, the only children "of the whole blood," that is, 
having the same father and the same mother, who were living 
at the time of his death. 



" An Inventory of the Estate of Thomas Richmond of 
Taunton taken the 19 th of December 1705 who dyed the 14 th 
of the s d month" [Bristol Co. Prob. Reds. II : 146.] 

"An account of John Richmond of Taunton one 

of the Administrators " mentions portions of the estate " in my 
son Ebenezers Richmond hand," " in my son Joseph Richmonds 
hand," "in my son Samuel. Richmonds hand," "in my son 
Edwards hand," "in my Son in law Richard Godffree," "in 
my son in law James walkers hand," also the payment "to my 
son John Richmond a debt due from the Estate." The account 
was approved by the judge of probate on 6 March, 1706/7, 
"And it is farther ordered by the said Judge that all the 
Remaining part of the personall Estate of the said Deceased 
Thomas Richmond by & hereby is settled on the said John 
Richmond ffather to the said Deceased and that the Real 
Estate the said Thomas Richmond Dyed lawfully seized of be 
equally Divided between Mary Godfree the wife of Richard 
Godfree of Taunton & Susanah Reed the wife of James Reed 
of Middlebury in the County of Piimouth being all of the whole 
blood that survived upon the Decease of the Intestate * John 
Richmond, the administrator, appealed to the Governor and

GOVERNOR BRADFORD'S MARRIAGE SETTLEMENT 
ON HIS SON WILLIAM 

Transcribed from the Original Records, 
By George Ernest Bowman 

William 2 Bradford (Gov. William 1 ), who is usually called 
"Major" William Bradford, married, first, Alice Richards of 
Weymouth, Mass., the daughter of Thomas and Welthian 
Richards, but the date of the marriage is not known. The 
date of Gov. Bradford's marriage settlement on his son Wil- 
liam, however, indicates that the ceremony was performed not 
far from 23 April, 1650; and it is certain that the marriage 
took place before 28 January, 1 650/1, since William 2 Bradford 
joined in a petition of the heirs of Thomas Richards on that 
date. [See "The Wills of Thomas and Welthian Richards" 
in this issue.] 

This marriage settlement, although made on 23 April, 1650, 
was not recorded until 29 October, 167 1, more than fourteen 
years after Governor Bradford's death, over a year and a half 
after his widow's death, and about six weeks before the death 
of Alice (Richards) Bradford. It is recorded in the Plymouth 
Colony Records of Deeds, Volume III, page 204.

ye 25th Christmas Day In y e Morning I Came off and Dis- 
misd My Guard at Gun Firing in y e Morning — It was a Worm

y e Ragulars Had a Gen 11 Frolick — In y e Evening I and My 
Mess Mates Set By y e Fire & Had Considrable Discorce about

y e Doors Hereing an Unusual Nois in the Fort & Jaust as I 
Got out y e Fire was Breaking out of y e Barrick at y e Left Hand 
as we Go in at y e Draw Bridge — y e Fire Increasd Vary Fast 
& in Half an Hour that Barrick was all in Flaims. & y e Fire 
Cetching on y e North End of y e East Barr k Which we Knew 
if that Got on Fire it Wold Get to the Large Maggazien in 
Spite of all Human art — But By the Help of water & Snow 
we Prevented its Burning Much on y e East Barrick altho it 
Lit on it Several Times & we were Obligd to Nock out y e 
Gable End — After y e Barrick was Consumd y e Fire Continud 
Vary Strong in y e Stor Seller Back of it — the Gates was 
trrown open & y e Draw Bridg Down till y e Fire was in Som 
Measure Quenchd — Many Men Were Employd in Wheeling 
Snow & throwing of it into y e Stor Seller — 

In y e Haith of y e Fire Several of y e Sentrys were Obligd 
to Quit their Posts By y e Extream Heet of y e Flames — y e

of y e Fire there Not a Man Losd — But there was a Dog per- 
rishd in the Seller — About 12 oClock y e Wliol Fire was 
Cheefly Put out & y e Men Releasd to their Quarters &c — 

The Two Lieu ts of y e Grannodears I Understand Lost all 
their Effects Except Just their Apperrel on their Backs and 
Great Sums of Money were Lost By Several other off rs — A 
Large Quantity of Kings Stors were Lost as well as a Vast 
Deal of Damage to y e Fort — But we Dont think Much of y e 
Loss Since y e Garri^ is Saved . which we Vary Much Feared — 

This Day I was Thinking what Remark I Might Make on 
y e Day to Remember the Chrismas By . But Since this Has 
Hapned I Think it a Sufficient Instance for a Memmorandum 
&c —

THE WILLS OF THOMAS AND WELTHIAN 
RICHARDS 

Abstracted from the Original Documents, 
By George Ernest Bowman 

The wills of Thomas Richards of Weymouth, Mass., and 
his widow, Welthian Richards of Boston, will interest many 
descendants of Plymouth Colony families, since their daughter 
Mary Richards was the first wife of Thomas 2 Hinckley f 
(Samuel 1 ), afterwards governor of Plymouth Colony, and bore 
him eight children, all but one of whom married. The daugh- 
ter Alice Richards became the wife of William 2 Bradford ± 
(Gov. William 1 ) and bore him ten children, all of whom 
married. 

The will of Thomas Richards was made at Hull, Mass., at 
the house of Thomas Loring, on 17 December, 1650, and the 
inventory of his goods at Weymouth was taken 18 January, 
1650/1 ; he must, therefore, have died between these two 
dates. None of the papers relating to his estate were re- 
corded, and the following abstracts, with the literal copy of 
the petition of the heirs, were made from the original docu- 
ments, now in the Suffolk County Probate Files in Boston. 

The will of the widow Welthian Richards was made at 
Boston on 3 July, 1679, an ^ proved 4 November, 1679. an< ^ 
she must have died between these dates. Her will, also, is 
in the Suffolk County Probate Files and the abstract here 
presented was made from the original document. 

* These nine marriages are separated from the preceding records by a line 
across the page, and evidently were ail by Rev. Nathaniel Eeils.

90 The Wills of Thomas and Welthian Richards 

[The Will of Thomas Richards] 

The will of Thomas Richards of Weymouth was made at the

to son Samuel ; to sons Joseph and Benjamin, both under 
twenty-one years of age ; " daughters mary and An and Alee

alike" but Mary is to have ^10 more than the others; 
"to Brother Tho s Loringe." Son John, Thomas Loring and 
Nicholas Baker are to see that the will is carried out. 

On 18 and 25 January, 1650/ 1, the goods at Weymouth, 
Mass., and Boston were inventoried. 

On 28 January, i65o/i,the inventories were sworn to by 
Mrs. Richards. An account rendered by her mentions debts 
due to " m r ffermace of Plimouth," to Thomas Hinckley, to 
Ephraim Hunt and to Captain Standish of Duxbury. 

On the same day the following petition of the heirs was 
presented to the court. 

"To the Honoured Court at Boston : 28 : (11) 1650

March y e 14 th 17 10/ 11 I am now arived to the age of one 
and fifty year this day : and am now entering upon the two 
[p. 31] and fiftyeth year of my Earthly pilgramage O my Souls 
how long hast thou Stood in gods vinyard how many times 
three years has the lord of the vinyard born with and forborn 
a fruitless tree O my lord thou hast exersised long and unweried 
patience towards me a barran Sinner who have deserved a 
thousand times to have been cut down and cast into the fire 
but O lord thy grace is free and under thy Injoyment of all 
thy favours O lord I will always cry grace grace free rich grace 
is the fountain from whence they all flow am I yet alive and 
out of hell tis grace free grace that I am So have I yet my 
dear frinds my wife my Children Spared and continued under 
comfortable circomstance it is free grace and rich undeserved 
mercy glory glory to free grace — have I and mine been pre- 
served heither unto from gross Scandals it is free grace for it 
is not in man that walketh to direct his own Steps : O my god 
I will acknowlege thee in all . for I have deserved by my Sins 
to have been forsaken of god . and Striped naked of all my 
comforts and that all my blessings Should have been cursed 
of god . but O my gratious god and mercyfull father I pray 
that for the Sake of my glorious lord Jesus Christ pardon and 
freely forgive [p. 32] all the Sins which Ither my Self or mine 
have been guilty in the year past ye in our whole lives O lord 
I come my Self and bring all that thou hast given me to that 
fountain which clenses from all Sin even the fountain of the 
blood Jesus Christ which was Shed for the Sins of many and 
O my blessed Saviour keep me and those thou hast given me 
that we may be all keept (whilst in the world from the evil of 
the world) and o let us be Spared one year longer let us be 
Spared and preserved from Sin that it may not greive us and 
offend god and provoke thee to deal with us as with the 
generation of thy wrath amen amen 

This day being the 14 th of march 1711/12 I have taken 
Some Steps towards the promoting of that which may have 
great influence into the comfort or discomfort of my Son John 
being a matter of as great concern to his outward State in the 
world as any he is like to be concerned in the gratious lord 
of mercy bless that concern and let it be caried on to his glory

third year of my "life in this world my Soul call now to mind the 
years of the right hand of the most high call to mind especily 
this day the providences of god that have passed over thee : 
the year past from Shittim unto gilgall from one dispensation 
of providence unto another that thou mayest remember the 
loving kindness of the lord . indeed I have cause with Sorrow 
of heart to bewail and lament the awfull Stroakes of the rod 
of god upon me in taking away two of my natural brethen who 
were dear unto me . ye and that after my most earnest prayers 
and Supplications to heaven for the Sparing of their lives yet 
nevertheless there was mercy mingled with this affliction & 
honey with this gall [p. 34] in that they both departed under 
comfortable circomstances as to their Eternal Estate glory be 
to god : but O my Soul let not this cup of Sorrow So over 
flow as to quench the Sence of gods mercyes which have been 
to me ward very great far beyond my deserts . god has pre- 
served me from that sore Sickness which caried away my two 
brothers ye and though god was pleased to Send it unto my 
family and to visit my Son Beniamin thereby in so terible a 
manner as that we all even dispared of his life yet god was 
gratious to him and to me in him in hearing my prayers in my 
.my destresing anguishes and restoring him to health again and 
in preserving my whole family that no more of them have been 
visited thereby when it is gone through other families . ye and 
further (which I desire to take notice of and to mention to gods 
glory) that not one of my friends who have charitably assisted 
with their help in the time of our distress have recived any 
damage thereby these things I here Set down that the genra- 
tions to come may take [p. 35] notice of gods goodness to me 
and be incurraged to put their trust in god who hath been my 
hope and refuge and a very present help (to me) in time of 
troble . Now may the god and father of our lord Jesus christ

the god of all grace and mercy please for christ Sake (whose 
blood was Sheed for the remission of the Sins of many) to 
pardon and freely forgive the many Sins that either my Self 
or any of mine have been guilty of in the year past and O that 
these blessings of goodness which we respectively have been 
made partakers of may prevent us from Sining against So good 
a god . and O that the blessings of divine goodness and mercy 
might follow me and mine this year also and that not according 
to the works which we have done or Shall do but O that

on the fifteenth day of December 171 3 my Son Benjamin 
departed this Life who on the eighth day of the Same month 
being at Sea on a whaleing desine the boat in which he was : 
was Staved to peices by a whale and he thrown into the water 
and wounded in his Body [p. 36] which with the cold of the 
water and wether Set him into a grevious fevour which co- 
opperating with his bodily hurt was the means of his death 
he was a lovly and desirable child both in life and death the 
last words almost which he uttered w r ere : Lord Jesus recive 
my Soul 

O cruel Death what can nothing Satisfy but the Life of So 
pleasent and desirable a comfort why couldst thou not have 
Seized on Some older infirm person whose life is Even a burden 
to them Selves and they them Selves a burden & a trouble to 
all about them what can nothing but the fairest and most 
flourishing flower Satisfie Such a devouring worm what cant 
the earnest desire of inocent nature for a longer Continuance 
nor the flowing tears of nearest and dearest relations avail 
nothing O no death is the king of terrours and comes with a 
commission from the lord of Life and death and will not nay 
cannot be bribed he must Strike those and only those that his 
commission reaches . and is it So indeed then O let me never 
be angry at death for he is my Lord and masters Servant and 
goes and comes at his biding but let me be forever displeased 
with Sin which is the Sting of death and makes it terible and 
let me and every gratious Soul bless god the father of mercyes 
who gives us the victory [p. 37] throught Jesus christ our 
Lord . and O let me and mine Especially be awakned by Such 
Solemn Stroakes to be diligent to prepare against our own 
time and chaing comes that we may then be found in christ 
who has conquered death and taken away the Sting thereof 
Amen amen.

PILGRIM NOTES AND QUERIES 

Notes 

Aaron 8 Soule's Wife. The Editor has had many inquiries for the 
maiden name of Man-, the wife of Aaron 3 Soule {Johti 1 , George 1 ) of Dux- 
bur) 7 and Pembroke. Just as we are going to press he has discovered 
documentary evidence which proves that she was the daughter of Deacon 
John and Abigail (Andrews) Wadsworth of Duxbury. This evidence will 
be printed in our July issue. 

Jabez Fitch, Jr., and "General Orders of 1757." In 1899 
Hon. W. Seward Webb published, under the title "General Orders of 
1757" an orderly book of Gen. Phineas Lyman's regiment in the campaign 
against the French in 1757. A facsimile of the first page of the orderly 
book was given, and when the Editor of this magazine saw this illustration 
he at once recognized the handwriting of Jabez Fitch, Jr., whose " Diary" 
we are publishing. An examination of this, diary for possible references 
to the orderly book disclosed the entries dated 27, 30 and 31 December, 
1757, and 5 January, 1758, ail included in the portion printed on pages 
71 to 74 of this issue. 

The purchase of paper which was made into a book, on 27 December, 
may not refer to this orderly book, but its first page bears a striking 
resemblance to the little home-made books in which the " Diary " was 
written; and the quantity of paper which Fitch "Made into a Book" 
would have supplied many of the little books which he made for the 
"Diary." Three days later the "First orders of y e Reg 1 " were written, 
and on 5 January Fitch was " Vary Deligent in Writing orders & Got as 
Far as y e I st of July," which indicates that he was recording in a book 
orders which had been kept on loose sheets.

A RARE BROADSIDE ON THE DEATH OF 
JOHN AJLDEN 

Reprinted from the Original 
With Notes by George Ernest Bowman 

Through the courtesy of a member of the Society of 
Mayflower Descendants, who owns the original, the Editor has 
been permitted to reprint the rare broadside on the death of 
John Alden shown in the illustration facing this page. The 
original broadside is about thirteen and three-eighths inches 
high by eight inches wide, and as it bears the statement that 
it was printed in the year 16S7 it must have been issued less 
than four months after John Alden died. I have not found 
any mention of this broadside, or of any reprint of it, and 
think it probable that it is now for the first time reprinted. 

The Massachusetts Historical Society owns a reprint of 
another broadside on the death of John Alden, but no copy 
of the original is known. The reprint is signed "J. C." and 
bears the imprint (i Reprinted for T. A. Jun. 1806." This 
was again reprinted by Rev. Timothy Alden, Jr., in 18 14, in 
his "Collection of American Epitaphs," in which he stated 
that it had several times appeared in print and was supposed 
to have been written by Rev. John Cotton of Plymouth. 

The date of John Alden's death is not found on the records 
of Plymouth Colony, or of the town of Duxbury, and the only- 
contemporary statement of the date heretofore known is that 
in Sewall's Diary, which says that he died on Monday, 12 Sep- 
tember, 1687. He was alive on 19 August, 1687, when he 
signed and acknowledged the first deed quoted in the " Alden 
Notes " in the following pages, and the settlement of his estate, 
printed in our third volume, shows that his inventory was 
taken on 31 October, 1687. He must have died, therefore, 

129 



130 A Rare Broadside on the Death of John Alden 

between these two dates, both in the year 16S7, and the 
statement so often repeated, that he died in 16S6, is an error. 
I have made no attempt to trace the first appearance of this 
error, but have noted it in Thacher's History of Plymouth, 
published in 1832, and in many publications of later date. 

If sufficient encouragement is received from those interested 
in the broadside now reprinted, a facsimile reproduction, of the 
exact size of the original, will be issued by the Massachusetts 
Society of Mayflower Descendants. Inquiries may be addressed 
to the Editor. 

The broadside reads as follows : 

A 

Small Testimony of that great HONOUR due to that 
Honourable Servant of GOD and his Generation 

John Alden Esq\ 

Who changed this life for a better, Sept. 12th. Anno Domini 1687. 

Annoq' iEtatis 89. 

The memory of the just is blessed. 

The jitst shall be had in everlasting remembrance. 

GOD brought a choice Vine to this desart land; 
And here did plant it with his own right hand, 
And from the heathen's rage did it defend. 
The which its root, from east to west did send. 
This precious Saint who now is gone to rest, 
And lie in Jesus bosom to be blest, 
A branch was of this vine, God did remove, 
Protect, defend, and water from above. 
A man to God's commands that had respect, 
And by His word he did his course direct. 
A lover of God's Habitation. 
A servant of his Generation. 
He was according to the Will of God, 
'While in this lower world he had abode. 
Sincere & faithful unto God was he, 
True Vertue's friend, to Vice an enemy. 
Holy and humble, full of Faith, & Love 
To Saints on earth, to God & Christ above. 
He many years did serve this Colony, 
Administring Justice impartially. 
He in this desart many changes saw, 
Yet closely kept unto Jehovah's Law. 
He Served God betimes, even from his youth, 



A Rare Broadside on the Death of John Aide ft 131 

And constantly did cleave unto his Truth. 

On Pisgati s mount he stood, and Canaan view'd 

Which in his heart and life he most pursu'd. 

On Tabor s mount he saw transfigured 

Blest Jesus, which within his bosom bred 

That love that made him say, ' Tis good being here, 

Its good, yea better than to be else-where. 

He lov'd on earth, to be with Christ on high ; 

He did on wings of Contemplation fly. 

To God in heaven he sent up many a dart, 

Which issued from a truly broken heart ; 

WTiich reach'd the ear of God, and such Return 

From heaven brought which made his heart to burn. 

With Enoch he with God on earth did walk 

With Abram he did with JEHOVAH talk. 

With Moses he did on the mount ascend, 

And to receieve God's mind himself did bend 

That he such meditations had divine, 

Which in Saints eyes did cause his face to shine. 

With length of days God did him satisfy, 

He liv'd so long, that he desir'd to die. 

He with old Simeon had of Christ a sight, 

WTio was prepar'd to be the Gentiles Light: 

Which made him willing hence for to depart, 

To be with Him that gained had his heart. 

He with good Jacob in his aged state 

Did earnestly for God's Salvation wait. 

He with Barsillaiy being near his end, 

His thoughts 'bove earthly comforts did ascend. 

He with St. Paul, his course now finished, 

Unclothed, is quietly put to bed. 

His Family and Christian friends he blest 

Before he did betake himself to rest. 

He to Religion was a real friend 

And Justice, till death brought him to his end. 

A man for God, and for his Countries Good, 

In all Relations wherein he stood. 

Let ALDEN y s all their Father imitate, 
And follow him till they come to death's state .• 
And he will them most heartily embrace, 
When he shall meet them in that blessed place. 
And let New-England never want a Race 
Of such as may be fill'd with Aldens Grace.

So many years the which are past & gone 
and truly Say as he did Spake of old 
My years are past Like as a tale that's told

which yet is granted me of thy free grace 
unto thy glory my gratious lord 
be pleased grace and wisdom to afford 
for one year more which now is coming on 
thy Sparing mercy I depend upon 
for me and mine O let it never fail 
and covenant blessings Lord on us contail 

in the year that is past I have Seen that which is hard to 
bear even the loss of a lovly Son which it pleased the lord 
to take away by the Stroake of death the Lord gives and the 
lord takes away blessed be the name of the Lord but it is hard 
to flesh and blood and the woormwood and the gall my Soul 
hath Still in remembrance and is humbled within me : also in 
the year past I have [p. 38] been made the Subject of many 
mercyes as in Special and perticaler I have been by the mercy 
of god restored to health from Sickness at Boston and also 
contagious distemper called the measels has passed throught 
my family with much moderation which I would ever acknolege 
as a favour of god thus would I Stir up my heavy heart to 
Sing of mercy and Judgment and pray always that I may have 
grace given me to behave my Self wisely in a perfect way 
untill the lord come unto me and manifest himself in a way of 
free grace unto my Soul here in this life and at last come and 
recive me into the Eternal kingdom of his glory even so come 
Lord Jesus . amen & amen 
A wreched Sorry fruitless worm am I 
unfit to live therefore not fit to die 
Then grant me Space and grace O lord 
that I may Strenght recall 
before that I from hence do go

Memorandom on the Eighth day of July in ye year of our 
Lord 17 14 there being then a Sore and [p. 41] threatning 
drought in the land Especially in barnstable county our pastor 
appointed this day to be Set apart to Seek mercy of the Lord 
on that account by Earnest prayer and Subblycation in & by 
the church and town of eastham and the lord was Gratiously 
pleased to hear & answer our prayers and that right Early 
and Spedily for this day being thrusday before that week was 
expired we had a very plentuous rain and was followed which 
repeated Showers of moderate rain whereby the wear}- Earth 
was refrished and the fruit and pasture wonderfully replenished 
as also this Same Summer we had the like gratious answer to 
our prayers on the Same occation this I record that the gen- 
erations to come may be incorrageed to call upon and put 
their trust in the lord 

on the thirteenth day of may anno dommini 17 16 My 
dearly beloved wife Bennet departed this life being five and 
fourty years two months and five and twenty dayes old being 
great with child and within two weeks of the time of her travel 
having lived with me in married State upwards of seven and 
twenty years (a most Solemn and awful Stroack indeed) [p. 42] 
and Shee has been the mother of thirteenth children which 
were born of her body all born alive Save one a Rich blessing 
She was to me indeed 

but now alas my God has called her away and She is gone 
to rest forever freed (as I have good reason to hope) from all 
Sin and Sorrow for what Sayes our Saviour Christ this day 
Shalt thou be with me in paridise So that the Souls of belevers 
do immediately pass into glory when they leave the body — 
this is to me matter of consolation in the Midst of my heart 
distressing Sorrows. She was indeed the desire of my Eyes 
and the Joy of my heart a most profitable and pleasant com- 
panion a most loving and obedient wife a tender and compation- 
ate mother a kind mistress a curtious neighbour and Steady 
and fast friend but above all and that which Crowmed all She 
was a good christian one that delighted to attend the worship 
of god both in publick and private and was not a Stranger to 
closet communion with god, but alas . alas the Temple wherein 
this blessed Soul did dwell is lain in the dust there to abide 
till the resurrection of the Just then by the almighty power 
of god to be raised in glory to Sing Eternal praises to our 
[p. 43] Glorious & blessed redeemer where I hope through the 
riches of free grace to meet her and till then adieu my dearest 
mate

that he would please to teach me what I See not and enable 
me by his grace that wherein I have done Iniquity I may do 
So no more

and that with Jesus he is now at rest

Vol. IX OCTOBER, J907 No. 4 



THE ORIGINAL BROADSIDE BY "J. C ON THE 
DEATH OF JOHN ALDEN 

Communicated by Alfred Baylies Page 

The communication by the Editor of The Mayflower 
Descendant, to the July number of the magazine, of A Rare 
Broadside On The Death Of John Alden, furnishes a distinct 
addition to the memorials of the famous Pilgrim. This newly 
discovered publication is equally interesting and valuable as 
a hitherto unknown specimen of Early American Poetry, even 
though the author of the verses has not been identified. 

The other poetical tribute to John Alden, by "J. C," 
mentioned in Mr. Bowman's article, is well known on account 
of its republication at various times ; but in its original broad- 
side form this is of equal rarity, and has also escaped 
the notice of bibliographers. A copy of this broadside is pre- 
served in the library of the Boston Athenaeum, and through 
the courtesy of the librarian, Mr. Charles K. Bolton, a fac- 
simile reproduction is here given. This broadside is bound 
in with an early file of the Boston News-Letter, where it has 
hitherto lain unnoticed. On the back of the sheet appears 
this inscription, in an unknown hand : " J no Alden Esq r y T . 12 . 
1687." 

The Reverend Timothy Alden, in his American Epitaphs, 
Volume III (18 14), ascribes the authorship of these verses to 
the Reverend John Cotton (1640- 1699) of Plymouth, and this 
identification has been accepted by Justin Winsor, in his His- 
tory of Duxbury ; but the production is overlooked by John 
Langdon Sibley in his list of the writings of Cotton. 

This broadside is somewhat smaller than the one reproduced 
in the July issue, being about eleven and three-eighths inches 
high by seven and one-fourth inches wide. 

193 



194 Broadside by "J. C" on the DcatJi of Jo/in A/den 

The fortuitous preservation of these two contemporary 
poetical tributes to John Alden is worthy of notice ; and it is 
especially fitting, since it has now become possible, that they 
should be brought together as companion pieces. 

If sufficient encouragement is received from those interested 
in the broadside now reprinted, a facsimile reproduction, of the 
exact size of the original, will be issued by the Massachu- 
setts Society of Mayflower Descendants. Inquiries should be 
addressed to the Editor of The Mayflower Descendant. 

The Elegy reads as follows : 

Upon the DEA TH of that Aged, Pious, Sincere-hearted 
CHRISTIAN, 

JOHN ALDEN esq: 

Late MAGISTRATE of New-Plimouth Colony, who dyed 

Sept I2tk. 1687. 

being about eighty nine years of age. 

The staffe of bread, and water eke the stay 
From sinning Judah God will take away, 
The prudent Counsellour, the Honoiirable, 
Whom Grace and Holiness makes delectable, 
The Judge, the Prophet and the ancient Saint, 
The deaths of such cause sorrowful complaint, 
The Earth and its Inhabitants do fall, 
The aged Saint bears up its pillars all. 
The hoary head in way of Righteousness 
A crown of glory is. Who can express 
Th' abundant blessings by Disciples old ! 
In very deed they're more than can be told. 
The guise 'tis of a wanton generation 
To wish the aged soon might quit their station, 
Tho' truth it be, The Lord our God does frown 
When aged Saints dy death do tumble down. 
What tho' there be not such Activity, 
Yet in their Prayers there's such Fervency 
As doth great mercy for a place obtain, 
And gracious presence of the Lord maintain. 
Tho Nature'^ strength in old age doth decay, 
Yet th' inwa\r\d man renew'd is day by day 
The very presence of a Saint in years 
Who lifts his soul to God with pray'rs & tears 






Broadside by "f. C." on the Death of John Aldcn 195 

Is a rich blessing unto any place 

Who have that mercy to behold his face : 

When sin is ripe and calls for desolation 

God will call home old Saints from such a nation 

Let sinners then of th' Aged weary be. 

God give me grace to mourn most heartily 

For death of this dear servant of the Lord, 

Whose life God did to us so long afford : 

God lent his life to greatest length of dayes ; 

In which he liv'd to his Redeemer's praise. 

In youthful time he made Moses his choice, 

His soul obeying great JEHO VAH's voice, 

Freely forsook the world for sake of GOD, 

In His House with His Saints to have abode. 

He followed GOD into this Wilderness ; 

Thereby to all the world he did profess, 

Affliction with the Saints a better part 

And more delightful to his holy heart 

Than sinful pleasures, lasting but a season : 

Thus said his Faith, so saith not carnal Reason. 

He came one of the first into this Land, 

And here was kept by God's most gracious hand 

Years sixty seven, which time he did behold 

To poor "New-England mercies Manifold : 

All God's great works to this His Israel 

From first implanting what to them befel : 

Of them he made a serious Observation, 

And could of them present a large Narration, 

His walk was holy, humble, and smcere, 

His heart was filled with JEHOVAH's Fear. 

He honour'd GOD with much integrity, 

God therefore did him truly magnify. 

The hearts of Saints intirely did him love, 

His Uprightness so highly did approve, 

That whilst to choose they had their liberty 

Within the Limits of this Colony 

Their Civil Leaders, him they ever chose. 

His Faithfulness made hearts with him to close. 

With all the Governours he did Assist ; 

His Name recorded is within the List 

Of Plimoulk's Pillars to his dying day. 

His Name is precious to eternal Ay. 

He set his Love on God and knew His Name, 

God therefore gives him everlasting Fame. 



196 Broadside by "J. C." on the Death of John Alden 

So good and heav'nly was his conversation, 

God gave long life, and slieiud htm His Salvation. 

(His work now finished upon this earth ; 

Seeing the death of what he saw the birth) 

His gracious Lord from heaven calls him home, 

[A]nd saith, My servant % 11010 to \_Hcavs\71 cojne : 

TJiou hast done good, been faithful unto Me, 

Now shalt thou live in bliss ETERNALL K 

On dying bed his Ailes were very great, 

Yet verily his heart on GOD was set. 

He bare his greifs with Faith and Patience, 

And did maintain his lively confidence : 

Saying to some, The work which God begun, 

He would preserve to its perfection. 

His mouth was full of blessings till his death 

To Ministers and Christians all : his breath 

Was very sweet by many a precious word 

He utter'd from the Spirit of his Lord. 

He liv'd in Christ, in Jesus now he sleeps : 

And his blest soul the Lord in safety keeps. 

JOHN ALDEN. Anagram End al on hi \ 

Death puts an End to all this world enjoyes, 
And frees the Saint from all that here annoyes. 
This blessed Saint hath seen an end of all 
Worldly perfections. Now his Lord does call 
Him to ascend from earth to heaven high. 
Where he is blest to all Eternity. 
Who walk with God as he, shall so be blest, 
And evermore in Christ His arms shall rest. 

Lord, Spare thy remnant, do not us forsake, 
Front us do not thy Holy Spirit take. 
Thy Cause, Thy Int'rest in this land still own : 
Thy gracious presence ay let be our Crown.

I notified their Intention of Marriage ; but the second Sabbath 
I forgot to publish them. When y e three Sabbaths were out, 
they sent word for me to marry them, and I consented, for y e 
Guests were invited, and y e Time Set, and I was afraid it would 
be an Occasion of Disaffection and Confusion if I should 
refuse ; which Consideration influenced me to marry them rather 
than deny ; laying my Account to bear the Consequences of my 
so doing. J: Scott.

[Thomas Dexter's Deposition] 

"Thomas Dexter aged about Sixty five Years , testifieth 
& Saith y t in y e Year — 1694 — I was present at Rochester 
with William Wyate Surveyor & John Benson Sen r & Mark 
Hascall all since deceas d When a twenty Acre Lot was laid 
out to John Dexter & said to be laid out at y e head of y e 
Second Wood Lot and they began at a Cedar Stake which 
they Set up by a Way which went from the House w ch John 
White Sold to Capt n Holmes to Peter Blackmers House which 
he first dwelt in at Rochester & from thence they ran North 
52 : Rods to another Stake w ch they Erected by a Way w ch 
went from Sam 1 Whites Dec d his Dwelling House to the 
Beaver Damm wher Peter Crapoo now dwells — And Since 
y e laying out of s d Lot I have often Seen y e Bounds & this 
day have been upon y e s d twenty Acre Lot & Saw a Cedar 
Stake Standing by the Way first Mentioned which I am well 
Satisfied was the place where they began & they called it the 
head of the Second Wood Lot, & I have also seen a red oak 
Stake at y e North End of s d 20 . acre Lot by the Way going 
to Peter Crapoos in y e Same Place where y e s d Stake was first 
Erected as I Judge' by reason of a very remarkable dead tree 
with a great Limb which hung over s d Way but is Since gone, 
a Stump remaining And y e Southerly Bounds of s d Twenty 
Acre Lot as M r Wyate erect d them is a considerable Distance 
North from the Northerly End of y e s d Second Wood Lot as 
it is now reputed to be. And this day Capt. Ed: Winslow 
was present on s d Lot, & according to his Information y e Most 
of his Nineteen Acres was laid out in y e Same Place where 
I Saw y e s d twenty Acre Lot laid out

[Deposition of John 4 White (Sa?nuel z , Resolved 2 )'] 

"John White of about Seventy Years of age testifieth & 
saith that I am well knowing to the twenty acre Lot laid out 
to John Dexter at or near y e head of his own Land which y e 
Clarkes now Claim, ever since the laying out thereof by M r 
Wyate & the reputed bounds thereof, & the first Corner Bounds 
a Cedar Stake Mentioned in y e Records as I Judge is the Same 
or stands in or near y e Same place where I first Saw it when 
or soon after it was first laid out being at y e Southerly End of 
s d Lot by an old Way which leads from the house which Capt. 
Holmes dwelt in to Peter Blackmers House he first dwelt in 
in Rochester, and also have ever since known y e Northerly 
Corner Bound being a red Oak Stake standing by a Way 
which leads from the Dwelling house of my Hon d Father 
Samuel White deceas d to Beaver Dam where Peter Crapoo 
now lives, S d Stake standing by y e Stump of an old tree then 
dead standing by s d Way, which has always been the reputed 
Northerly Corner Bounds of s d Lot. And altho . it is said 
that y e s d 20 . acre Lot is laid out adjoyning to the Second 
Wood Lot, Yet according as the s d Stakes then were & now 
are which I have known as afores d the South End of s d 20 . 
Acre Lot does not Extend so far Southerly as to join s d Second 
Wood Lot, as s d Wood Lot is now reputed to be bounded. & 
according to the Bounds of y e . 19 . Acres laid out by Capt.

UNRECORDED BARNSTABLE COUNTY DEEDS 

{Continued from Vol. VIII, p. ijg) 

[Ninety-three volumes of the Barnstable County, Mass.. Records of Deeds 
were destroyed by fire in October, 1827, only one volume being saved. After 
the fire a portion of the deeds which had been recorded in the burned volumes 
were re-recorded in the Barnstable Registry, but at the present time there are 
in private hands hundreds of original deeds of land in Barnstable County, many 
of them dated before 1700, of which no public record now exists. In order 
to preserve and make accessible the historical and genealogical material con- 
tained in these unrecorded documents, the Massachusetts Society of Mayflower 
Descendants is making a record of all that are available through gift or 
temporary loan to the Society. 

A literal copy of each document is made by the Editor in books provided 
for this purpose, and as each book is completed a careful index of every name 
and place mentioned in it will be added. Abstracts of these deeds will be 
published in " The Mayflower Descendant " from time to time. 

Information regarding the present ownership of old deeds of land in 
Barnstable County will be gratefully received, and the owners may be sure that 
if these documents are temporarily loaned to the Society they will have the 
best of care and, in many cases, wili be better protected in the Society's safe 
than in their present resting places.] 

The document on which are written the two deeds here 
abstracted was loaned to the Society by Hon. John Kendrick 
of Orleans, Mass.

AARON 3 SOULE'S WIFE MARY WADSWORTH 

AND THE MARRIAGES OF FIVE 

OF HER SISTERS 

By George Ernest Bowman 



Just as the April issue was going to press I discovered the 
parentage of Mary the wife of Aaron 3 Soule (fo/in 2 , George 1 ) 
and announced that the proof would be published in the July 
issue. There had not been time to study the other marriage 
connections affected by the document containing this proof, 
therefore I made no mention of them. The investigation of 
these marriages necessitated a personal examination of the 
original records at Duxbury, Marshfield and Plymouth, Mass., 
and at Plainneld, Lebanon and Groton, Conn., as well as of 
much manuscript data belonging to this Society, and it was 
impossible to complete the work in time to publish the article 
in the July issue. 

The results obtained, however, were well worth the delay, 
since I have been able to prove not only that Aaron 3 Soule's 
wife Mary was the daughter of Deacon John and Abigail 

*The words in italics are later additions to the record. 



Aaron 3 Sonles Wife Mary Wadsworth 247 

(Andrews) Wadsworth of Duxbury, but also that Jonathan 
Peterson's wife Lydia was a daughter of Deacon Wadsworth, 
not of Rodolphus Thacher, as heretofore claimed, and that 
this Lydia Thacher married John Dean. The parentage of 
Jacob Tomson's wife Abigail Wadsworth, of Benjamin Peter- 
son's wife Hannah Wadsworth, • of William Sprague's wife 
Grace, and of William Brewster's wife Hopestill Wadsworth 
is also established by the evidence here presented, all of them 
having been daughters of Deacon John and Abigail Wadsworth. 

Deacon John Wadsworth died 15 May, 1700, "about Sixty 
two yeares of age." His widow, Abigail, died '-'about Mid- 
night betwixt y e 24 th and 25 th " of November, 1723, " about 
76 years of age." "Hannah Peterson y e wife of Benjamin 
Peterson" died "the night following the 6 th " of February, 
1732/3. ["General Records Dates Included 1645-1749 Town 
of Duxbury," p. 166.] 

The will of John Wads worth, Sr., of Duxbury, was dated 
23 April, 1700, and probated 30 July, 1700. It names wife 
Abigail ; eldest son John ; second son Christopher, third son 
Ichabod and youngest son Isaac, all three under age ; son-in- 
law Jacob Tomson ; "my three daughters which are married " ; 
"my daughter Lydia & Grace which are of age Shall have two 
cows each of them And wedding cioaths " ; "my two daughters 
that are in their nonage hopestill & Mercy "; " my children which 
are in their nonage & Sarah that is non Compis mentis Shall 
be under their mothers care." [Plym. Co. Prob. Records, 

1:323-] 

The widow Abigail W 7 adsworth left no will and Jacob Tom- 
son, Esq., of Middleborough was appointed administrator of 
her estate, 20 December, 1723. [Plym. Co. Prob. Records, 
IV : 379.] There is no other mention of her estate on the 
probate records, but in the files I found the original inventory 
of her estate. Omitting the items of personal property taken 
by the several daughters, the document reads as follows: "A 
true Inventory of all and singular the personal Estate of m rs 
Abigail Wadsworth Widdow : late of Duxborough Deceased 
Taken the fourth day of December : 1723 : and since Taken 
in the custody of her daughters Respectively as it fell by lot 

unto them ; as followeth Imprimis : unto Mary Soul 

Item : unto Abigail Tomson Item unto Sarah Wads- 
worth Item unto Hannah Peterson Item 

unto Lydia Peterson Item unto Grace Sprague 

Item unto Hopestill Brewster . ..... Item : unto Mercy 

Wadsworth " 



248 Aaron 5 Scales Wife Mary Wadsworth 

This inventory was made out, in the handwriting of Jacob 
Tomson, on 4 December, 1723, and appraised on 3 March, 
1723/4, by John Alden and " Ben." Delano. Mercy Wadsworth 
received two shares, the others one share each. 

John Wadsworth and Abigail Andrews were married 25 July, 
1667, and the births of five of their children are recorded at 
Duxbury, viz.: Mary, iS December, 1668; Abigail, 25 October, 
1670; John, 12 March, 1671/2 ; Christopher, 15 March, 1684/5 ; 
Ichabod, in March, 16S6/7. [Ante, VIII : 232 and IX : 172, 
175, 230.] The probate records and files quoted show that 
the other children living in 1700 were Sarah, Hannah, Lydia, 
Grace, Hopestill, Mercy and Isaac. 

Abigail Wadsworth married Jacob 3 Tomson (Mary 2 Cooke, 
Francis 1 ) 2S December, 1693. Hannah Wadsworth married 
Benjamin Peterson 9 February, 1698. Hopestill Wadsworth 
married William 4 Brewster ( William*, Love 2 , William 1 ) 20 May, 
170S. [Ante, II : 43 ; VIII : 232 ; IX : 108.] Sarah Wads- 
worth was non compos mentis in 1700 and still unmarried in 
1723. Mercy Wadsworth was unmarried in 1723 and I have 
not traced her farther. The other three daughters in 1723 
were called Mary Soule, Lydia Peterson and Grace Sprague. 

Mary, the wife of Aaron 3 Soule, was buried at Pembroke, 
and her gravestone states that she died 9 May, 1741, in her 
73d year. This agrees with the date of birth of John and 
Abigail Wadsworth's daughter Mary, and as this daughter 
was called Mary Soule in the settlement of her mother's estate, 
in 1723, there can be no doubt that Mary W T adsworth married 
Aaron 3 Soule (Jolm 2 , George'"). The date of the marriage 
I have been unable to find, but discovered, on the fifth page 
of the oldest book of records of the First Church at Marshfield, 
a child not heretofore noticed, I believe : " Christopher Soul 
Son of Aaron Soul of Duxbury was baptized May 28 th 1699" 
It was this name, Christopher, which led to the investigation 
of the W r adsworth family and the . identification of the child's 
mother. 

Grace Wadsworth was of age, but unmarried, at the date 
of her father's will, 23 April, 1700, and was called Grace 
Sprague 4 December, 1723, in the settlement of her mother's 
estate. The record of her marriage to William Sprague has 
not been found, but William and Grace Sprague had children, 
according to the Duxbury Records, as follows: Ruth, 22 Feb- 
ruary, 1701/2 ; Zeruiah, 10 December, 1704; Jethro, 30 Novem- 
ber, 1709; Terah, 17 February, 1711/12. [Ante, VIII : 233.] 
Grace Sprague was appointed administratrix of the estate of 



' 






Aaron* Soule's Wife Mary Wadswortk 249 

her husband 011 21 February, 17 12 ; and on 21 March, 17 15/16, 
the estate was settled, the widow receiving her thirds, and the 
remainder being divided "among the four Children," "Eldest 
son Jethro," "Second son Terah," "Eldest daughter Ruth.'' 
"Youngest daughter Zurviah." [Plym. Co. Probate Records, 
III : 203, 394.] 

Josiah Wormall and Grace Sprague, both of Duxbury, were 
married 25 December, 1723. [Ante 4 : 72.] Grace Wormall 
of Duxbury was appointed administratrix of the estate of her 
late husband Josiah on 3 November, 1738, and the widow's 
thirds of the real estate were set off to her 7 July, 1740. 
[Plym. Co. Probate Records, VII : 449, VIII : 239.] Grace 
Wormall, widow, of Duxbury made her will 13 January, 1748, 
and it was proved 3 April, 1758. She mentioned sons Jethro 
Sprague and Terah Sprague; daughter Zerviah Chandler; "my 
SLx Grand Childeren the Childeren of My Daughter Ruth late 
deced viz, to William Keen, Levi Keen, Abel Keen, Samuel] 
Keen, Josiah Keen, & Grace Cole " ; granddaughters Silvina 
Sprague and Grace Sprague ; grandson Reuben Chandler ; grand- 
son William Sprague. [Plym. Co. Probate Records, XIV : 503.] 

The foregoing abstracts prove that Grace Wadsworth married 
William Sprague in 1700 or 1701, became a widow in 171 2 or 
171 3, and was married again, in 1723, to Josiah Wormall, 
whom she survived about twenty years. 

Deacon John Wadsworth' s fifth daughter, Lydia, was of 
age, but unmarried, when her father made his will, 23 April, 
1700, and had become Lydia Peterson before 4 December, 1723, 
according to the settlement of her mother's estate. The only 
Lydia Peterson I could find, who could possibly be the one 
named in this document, was Lydia the wife of Jonathan Peter- 
son of Duxbury. But Winsor's History oi Duxbury, published 
in 1849, states that Jonathan Peterson married Lydia the 
daughter of Rodolphus Thacher of Duxbury, and this appears 
to have been accepted without question hitherto. It was neces- 
sary, therefore, to determine whether Lydia Thacher married 
Jonathan Peterson or some one else — or died unmarried. The 
investigation was rendered more difficult by the various migra- 
tions of the Thacher family, but I was able to secure absolute 
proof that Lydia Thacher married, not Jonathan Peterson of 
Duxbury, but John Dean of Plainfield, Lebanon and Groton, 
Conn. 

As already stated, Lydia Wadsworth was still unmarried on 
23 April, 1700, and became Lydia Peterson before 4 December, 
1723. Jonathan and Lydia Peterson had children born at 



250 Aaron* Sonic s Wife Mary Wadsworih 

Duxbury as follows : John, 22 August, 1701 ; Hopestiil, 20 Jan- 
uary, 1703; Jonathan, 20 September, 1706; Reuben, S April, 
1 7 10. The births of these four children, with those of William 
and Grace Sprague and of Jacob the son of Benjamin and 
Hannah Peterson are the only records on this page of the 
original. [Ante, VIII : 233.] 

Lydia the widow of Jonathan Peterson died 26 May, 1756, 
aged jj years, 3 months, 3 days. She was born, therefore, 
13 February, 1678, old style, (or 23 February, 1679, new style). 
[Ante, IX : 161.] Lydia the daughter of Rodolphus and Ruth 
Thacher was born 24 January, 1679, according to the Duxbury 
records. [Ante, IX : 175.] This date is undoubtedly in old 
style. If this supposition is correct, Lydia Thacher was born 
3 February, 1680, new style, or nearly one year after Lydia 
Wadsworth. If the year as recorded had already been changed 
to new style, which is not probable, then Lydia Thacher was 
about one month the older. This difference in ages would 
alone raise a doubt as to the parentage claimed for Lydia 
Peterson in the History of Duxbury. 

On 9 April, 1694, Rodolphus Thacher and wife Ruth, of 
Duxbury, conveyed land to their son Thomas Thacher of Dux- 
, bury. Rodolphus Thacher of Chilmark, formerly of Duxbury, 
signed a deed on $ June, 1694. Again, in 1707, Rodolphus 
Thacher and wife Ruth, of Chilmark, conveyed land. % [Plym. 
Co. Deeds, III : 173, V : 220, X : 67.] Rodolphus Thacher 
removed, therefore, from Duxbury to Chilmark, on the island 
of Martha's Vineyard, in 1694, when his daughter Lydia was 
about fifteen years old, and I am now able to prove that she 
is the Lydia of the following note printed in the New England 
Historical and Genealogical Register, Vol. XIV, p. 12 : "[From 
Chilmark Records : — ' Then was married John Deane and 
Lydia Thacher both of Lebanon in y e Colony of Connecticut 
by James Allen, Esq., on Martha's Vineyard, on June 10 [ — ?]' 
R. L. Pease, The year must have been as early as 1709. D.]." 

" Silas Dean the of John Dean and Lydia his wife was 
born the 14 of September 1709" [Plainfield, Conn., Records, 
I : 10.] 

" John dean Son to John dean and Lidyah his wife was born 
the twenty Seventh day of may : 1 7 1 3 

" Barzillai dean son to John dean and Lidyah dean his wife 
was born the twenty Eighth day of december : 17 14 

et Lydia Dean Daughter to John Dean & Lydia born April 

ye jgth : 1721 

" Anna Deen Daughter to John Dean & Lidia Dean was 
born May the 27 th 171 1. Deceased May y e 29 th 1723. 



Yarmouth, Mass., Vital Records 251 

" Barnabas Dean son of John Dean & Lidia Dean was born 
January the 31 th 172-I" 

The births of John, Barzillai, Lydia, Anna and Barnabas 
are found on the thirty-first page (unnumbered) of the oldest 
book of vital records at Groton, Conn. 

On 8 December, 1708, Thomas Thacher of Lebanon, Conn., 
conveyed land to "my Honoured ffather M r Rhodolphus 
Thacher of Chillmark in Duke County" [Lebanon, Conn., 
Deeds, II : 114.] 

On 17 April, 1733, John Dean of Groton conveys land to 
"my Dutifull Son Silas Dean of Groton" [Groton, Conn., 
Deeds, IV : 217.] 

On 13 January 1746/7, Silas Dean conveyed to his brother, 
John Dean, Jr. ; and John, Jr., conveyed to Silas, both being 
of Groton and the second deed covering land bounded north, 
east and south by land of Ensign John Dean. [Groton, Conn., 
Deeds, V : 79, 108.] 

On 24 December, 1737, "Silas Dean John Dean Jun r & 
Barzillai Dean all of Groton" sold to '''our Honored Uncle 
M r Thomas Thacher of Lebanon" all their rights "In or unto 
all the Land, which our Honored Grand father m r Rhodolphus 
Thacher Late of Groton aboves d deceased dyed seised of Lying 
In the Town of Lebanon " [Lebanon, Conn., Deeds, V : 405.] 

" Mrs. Lydia Dean the wife of Ensign John Dean Deceased 
January the 15 : 1737." [From page 129 of book numbered I, 
Groton, Conn., Records.] 

The copies and abstracts given furnish conclusive proof 
that Rodolphus Thacher 's daughter Lydia married John Dean 
and not Jonathan Peterson.

HISTORY OF MIDDLEBORO 

MASSACHUSETTS 

MIDDLEBORO is in the heart of the Pilgrim Country, and its 
history, going back to the year of its settlement, is necessarily 
closely interlaced with the history of the Old Colony. The 
book includes a history, of what is now the town of Lakeville, formerly 
a part of Middleboro, up to the time of separation of the two. 

The author and compiler, Thomas Weston, Esq., of Newton, is a 
native and former resident of Middleboro and is well qualined for the 
task which he undertook. He has been ably assisted by members of 
the Committee and others, and after much study, research, and care- 
ful revision, the Committee feels that this history is as free from errors 
as is possible in a work of this character. 

The illustrations are nearly all from photographs specially made 
for the purpose by an experienced photographer ; the engravings 
therefrom have been made by the best engravers in the country under 
the supervision of a man who knows good work and will accept noth- 
ing but the best. 

It is in one volume of about 750 pages, 6}( x 954, printed at 
the Riverside Press, on high grade paper, top edges gilded, bound in 
blue cloth and gold lettered. 

The price is $5.00 net. Remittances should be made to the 
undersigned and should include postage (32c), otherwise the book 
will be sent by express. 

JOSEPH E. BEALS, Chairman of Committee 

Middleboro, Mass.

GENEALOGICAL 
RESEARCH 

In any part of Plymouth^ Barnstable^ and 
Bristol Counties 

Those desiring to have investigations 
made in this section will find it to their 
advantage to have the work done by the 
Massachusetts Society of Mayflower 
Descendants, which owns a large and 
rapidly increasing collection of abstracts 
of probate and land records, als^) of town, 
church, cemetery, and private records, and 
has developed many lines of Mayflower 
descent not yet printed. 

All investigations are conducted under 
the personal supervision of the Editor, and 
all fees received are added to the Society's 
Colonial Research Fund. 

Address: 

GEORGE ERNEST BOWMAN
